Information on the price reduction

We offer various fee reductions for our courses and the childcare
Our course and childcare fees vary because donations and cantonal contributions allow us to offer fee reductions based on your canton of residence. You too can take advantage of these reductions!

Please note the following important information:

If you live in Basel-Stadt, you can benefit from a price reduction for German courses and childcare. 

1. In order to calculate the price reduction, we need your health insurance premium reduction. 
> If you do not yet receive a health insurance premium reduction, you can contact the canton's benefits office ASB (Amt für Sozialbeiträge): www.asb.bs.ch/krankenversicherung/praemienverbilligung.html.
> The ASB will assign you a reduction category based on your income and family situation. You will receive a fee reduction from K5 according to this category.

2. In order to for you to receive a price reduction, we have to forward your data to the education department of the canton BS (adult education department) (last name, first name, date of birth, nationality, residence status, gender, number of years of formal education, employment yes or no).

3. In order to for you to receive a price reduction for childcare, we have to forward your child's data to the education department of the canton BS (adult education department) (last name, first name, date of birth of the child).

We offer courses that are free with the Basel-Stadt voucher. With a free voucher, there is no reduction on the childcare price. 

The K5 playgroup accepts children who are required by the canton Basel-Stadt to attend a playgroup in order to learn German (Obligatorium BS).

If you live in canton Baselland, we can then give you a fee reduction based on your income for specific courses up to Niveau B1. In order to receive a fee reduction, you must provide K5 with your salary statements from the past three months. According to the regulations of the canton Basel-Landschaft, a reduction is only granted to persons with a regular long-term residency (residency permits B, C, or the Swiss passport).

If you live in the Dorneck-Thierstein district of canton Solothurn, you can take advantage of fixed reduced fees for certain courses. The fees for Solothurn residents are written on K5's course descriptions.

Other cantons
We also offer reductions on a few courses (including childcare) for people living in other cantons. In order to receive a fee reduction, you must provide K5 with your salary statements from the past three months.

Please stop by or call us. We would be happy to assist you in your language of choice.
